About   Me

I began my social work career in 1995 as a maternal-child hospital social worker at North Shore University in Manhasset, New York. Having had life experience in infertility and pregnancy loss, I dedicated myself to creating support programs (individual, group and community-based) for those struggling to build their families. The programs based at the hospital continue to thrive today. My private practice, which began in 1998 evolved from my hospital work and has branched out over the years. It remains focused on loss and transition, anxiety, depression and problems in daily living, and relationship concerns. My clients include young adults, adults in mid-life as well as those in later years. Clinical strategies utilized are unique to each client and situation.

I graduated with a B.A. in psychology from The George Washington University in 1981, and an M.S.W. and Ph.D. from Adelphi University in 1995 and 2007 respectively. I am fortunate to be able to do the work that I love, combining social work practice, social work education and research. I am on the faculty of Adelphi University School of Social Work , and am a professional member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, NAPSW, NASW, NYSSCSW and RESOLVE.
